Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that. It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece. I strongly recommend anyone...
Let's see...no new Zelda, no new Metroid, no new Mario adventure game...ouch. Never fear, though, there are still some decent buys for Gamecube types.
Resident Evil 4
Leon's having a bad day, but you''ll have a great one if you invest in this riveting, gorgeous survival-horror romp. The Gamecube - and video gaming in general - simply doesn't get any better than this.
